It's Shanghai Noon but the text says VHS and the page says DVD. How you supposed to know which is which?

There are other similar listings on half.com, such as the Tigger Movie. I guess there is no entry for the VHS, so if you have one to sell, you're kind forced to list it under the DVD. But that's just a guess.....

Oh, ok. I didn't know that. Thanks Jobronie.

I've only been playing with Half.com for a few days and are not used to their setup.

Same here, it's just that two titles I was looking for each had a stack of these "but it's a VHS" under the DVD listings, so I kinda noticed a pattern. Really stinks if you wanna put in a pre-order; I doubt their system will notice the comments, and by then, it's too late....

Take a look at the listing for Hard Boiled CC. Many of the listings are for the Hong Kong version....

Half.com - half the sense, half the wisdom, half the service and the list goes on. Too bad the half don't refer to the price!

Help me out Jobronie, how can you tell which ones are the Hong Kong versions? Thanks.
